David Remfry has produced beautiful portraits of dogs and their often well-known owners, creating evocative pencil-and-watercolour portraits to reveal the companions' mutual understanding, empathy and pathos. The sitters include a number of residents of the Chelsea Hotel as well as other partnerships he has witnessed in New York and London. These include: Alan Cumming and his rescue dog Honey; Susan Sarandon and her diva-like Pomeranians, Penny and Rigby; Agnes Gund and her Wheaten Terriers, Tina, Giotto and Bronzino; Laura Kaplan and her dachshund Oscar; Ethan Hawke and Nina. The list is intriguing, the relationships heartfelt. Remfry's portraits are accompanied by preliminary sketches and the artist's reminiscences about the sittings, as well as brief accounts by his sitters of how dog and owner came to find one another.
David Remfry, best known for his life-size watercolors of urban scenes and nightclubs. He had his first solo show in London in 1973; more than 50 international solo exhibitions have followed at such major venues as the Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown, Ohio; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; and PS1 Contemporary Art Center, Long Island City, New York.
